Classic Pick O’ the Day — November 27

Brighton Rock (1947)
A small-time hood tries to cover up his murder of a rival.
Dir: John Boulting. Cast: Richard Attenborough, Carol Marsh, Hermione Baddeley. TV-PG. 6:00 PM EDT. TCM.

Yet another Graham Greene “entertainment”. British gangster films aren’t quite as satisfying as their American counterparts, but Attenborough does a bang up job here as the gangster. Greene’s story is well-paced as well and as usual. Also on TCM tomorrow are prior CPODs Treasure Island (6:00 AM), Lord of the Flies (8:00 AM), Frankenstein (9:45 AM), Ivanhoe (11:00 AM) and Wuthering Heights (1:00 PM).
